Join us in-person this Fall in Mystic, CT! 

We are excited to announce our first in-person conference since 2019. Fittingly, the overarching theme of the conference is "Better Together: Implementing Effective Teamwork and Collaboration." This focus will provide an invaluable opportunity to network with your IB colleagues from around the region and help you discover new ideas in the development of your Program's Approaches to Teaching & Learning.

Registration includes the following:

  • a keynote from Connie Hamilton
  • a complimentary copy of Connie Hamilton's soon-to-be published book Hacking Group Work
  • three breakout sessions led by IB educators
  • breakout sessions for interested non-IB schools
  • PYP, MYP, CP, and DP program sessions
  • remarks from Senior IB World Schools Manager Melissa Cuculich and Antrina Leeth
  • breakfast and lunch on both days
  • plenty of networking time!

The GIBS Conference is the perfect professional development opportunity for heads of schools, coordinators, teachers, and district and school board officials to promote best practices in the Northeast region.
